my journey – part 24

Do you schedule time for God?

Is your schedule so busy that he gets his
fifteen minute slot
among the rest of your appointments?

Does he get the best part of your day –
the first-fruits of your time?

or does he receive the afterthought prayer at night?

Does God get the best part of your day?

the leftover part of your day?

or does he get all of your day?

God have mercy on me.
God have mercy on me.

I don’t think it’s much of a stretch to say that we compartmentalize our lives in many ways. It’s become acceptable, especially in our American culture, to separate and schedule. I have friends who literally schedule every minute of their day.

I wonder sometime how frustrated God gets with that mindset. Christianity is, after all, a lifestyle. It’s not something that you can simply turn on and off. It’s something that is with you every minute of the day, every day of the week.

We’re very good about “giving God” a certain amount of time every week, or if we’re good every day.

The problem, I think, is that God demands everything. It’s not “our time” to begin with. It’s his.
